RAIN RESCUE CELEBRATES ITS 10TH YEAR AS A REGISTERED CHARITY
Rain Rescue a South Yorkshire based dog and cat rescue this weekend celebrated its 10th year as a registered charity. Founded in 2002 and registered with the Charities Commission in 2006 the small charity has saved the lives of thousands of animals across the region. Mostly dogs due to be put to sleep in the local authority stray kennels as well as cats and kittens abandoned on the streets.
The charity celebrated their landmark achievement with a small gathering this weekend by opening up their newly installed cattery. The cattery is known as ‘Linda’s Cattery’ in memory of Linda Napper who passed away suddenly last year. The cattery was funded by money raised in her memory as well as a grant by The Pet Plan Charitable Trust.
Lauren Sanderson, Deputy Charity Manager says ‘It was a moment for us to reflect on what the charity has achieved as well as remember our dear friend and colleague Linda. Linda was an inspiration to everyone she met, having dedicated her life to rescuing animals in need we felt it fitting that our cattery would be named in her memory.’
Despite only officially opening this weekend the cattery is already full to the brim with cats and kittens waiting for their new homes. In the last 12 months alone Rain Rescue has rescued and rehomed over 300 cats in need.
